DBasia.news – Barcelona is reportedly threatened with bankruptcy. The La Liga giants could avoid bankruptcy if they cut player salaries again.
Barcelona's financial situation is reportedly at a nadir. One of the causes is the corona virus pandemic which has drastically reduced club income.
In addition, the departure of Josep Maria Bartomeu also made things even more difficult. The problem is, Bartomeu is accused of being the actor who made Barca's finances red. Bartomeu left before solving the problem he was making.
Esport RAC reports that Barcelona is in danger of going bankrupt in January 2021 if they don't take anticipatory steps. One of the ways we will try is to cut players' salaries by up to £ 170 million.
The club will immediately hold talks with representatives of the players. The deadline for resolving this issue is until next Thursday.
Reportedly, Barcelona suffered losses of up to 230 million pouds. Meanwhile, player salaries account for about 80 percent of Barcelona's expenses.
Later, Barcelona players who have just agreed to contract extensions, namely Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Frenkie de Jong, Clement Lenglet, and Gerard Pique will also experience wage cuts. They will not receive a salary like the figures in the new contract.
Previously, Barca players also agreed to have their wages cut by up to 70 percent in March to ensure workers remain paid wages and are not fired.
Currently, Lionel Messi is the player with the highest income, which is around 500 thousand pounds per week. Meanwhile, Antoine Griezmann received a salary of 300 thousand per week, while Pique was 220 thousand pounds in the same period.
